Default I need help to help client

So I have a client who is trying to wear her hair curly after years of straightening (without chemicals.)

She is struggling with a few things and I have very little experience with non-chemical transitioning. (or chemical transitioning for that matter!) Her very tight coil pattern has a lot of shrinkage which I explained was normal although understandably frustrating.

I gave her tips on shingling, trying a protein shampoo (she's not cg) once a week, trying creams (rec Curl Junkie and KCCC). I also gave her nc.com and curlynikki.com info for her to research.

One of the main problems however is that her top layer has stick straight pieces. I'm guessing elasticity damage and I told her we didn't want to cut them unless she was committed to wearing curly all the time (which she's not.) I recommended doing pin curls on those pieces.
I really don't know what else to suggest to her. I also am a little intimated if she wants a haircut.
Does anyone have experience with very tight coils, high density, fine texture going natural for the first time clients?
